Snake Man theme song
by Carman Clark

All Snake Killers

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer

A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.

 Rubber Rattlesnake 

Woman claims company planted fake snake in attic.

Attack of the Rubber Rattlesnake!

At Southeastern Reptile Rescue we are constantly receiving snake calls. Each one stranger than the next. In March of 2007, we received a call from a lady (Sharon Jordan)  in Mcdonough, GA in reference to a snake in her attic. Upon speaking with Ms. Jordan I was advised that she had a snake in her attic and she wanted to know if we could assist her in removing it. Jason Clark then asked Ms. Jordan how she knew a snake was in her attic and she said that a pest removal company had inspected her attic for squirrels and saw the snake but was unable to capture it at the moment. Ms. Jordan told Jason that the snake in the attic was a rattlesnake. Upon hearing this, Jason knew something was way off and asked why she thought it was a rattlesnake. Ms. Jordan told Jason that the company had taken a picture of the "rattlesnake" with a digital camera and showed her the image. Jason then informed Ms. Jordan that the only way she had a rattlesnake in her attic was if someone had placed it there. Ms. Jordan then scheduled us to meet at her home and inspect her attic and try to find a rattlesnake, real or rubber. Jason along with Ms. Jordan and her family inspected the attic and found the location where the photograph of the rubber rattlesnake was taken. There was no snake to be found. After seeing the photographs of the rattlesnake, Jason emphatically assured Ms. Jordan that the snake in the picture was in fact a fake. A few days later we were contacted by Adam Murphy an investigative reporter with CBS 46 News in Atlanta. Jason Clark spoke with Mr. Murphy who wanted to know all about the rubber rattlesnake. Arraingements were then made for Jason to bring a real rattlesnake to Ms. Jordan's home and meet the news crew in order to get shots of the real thing. Below are some photos of the event as well as photos of the rubber rattlesnake.

Woman Says Company Planted Fake Snake, Gave Bill to Remove It

MCDONOUGH, GA. (CBS 46)--A McDonough woman says a wildlife removal company.. tried to charge her more than five-thousand eliminate a "pest problem".

Sharon Jordan claims that a company planted a fake snake inside her attic.

Jordan hired Wildlife Removal Specialists to get rid of squirrels in her attic, but things got real squirrely when they showed her photographs they had taken of what appeared to be a rattlesnake in her attic.

That's when she called on Jason Clark for a second opinion. He owns a reptile rescue group and is licensed by the state to remove snakes.

He didn't find anything in her attic and was shocked when he saw the photographs. Clark told CBS 46, "As soon as I looked at it there was no mistake this was a rubber snake. So either the person who took the photograph knew absolutely nothing about snakes or it was planted there by the person who took the photograph."

CBS 46 Consumer Investigator Adam Murphy confronted the company to find out what really happened, after a CBS 46 undercover camera captured workers removing what appeared to be rubber snake from jordan's attic.

Wildlife Removal Specialist workers say they didn't plant the snake, but they sure did post the pictures on their website.

Murphy: "I think you still have some explaining to do on this." Worker: "No sir, I don't have any explaining because I'm not a liar. I haven't put anything in anybody's attic to insenuate there's a problem that's not there."

But they did walk out with the rubber rattle snake, which was captured in the back of their truck by a CBS 46 camera. The snake looked like the one in the photographs.

Sharon Jordan says," These are con artists. They have a scam going."

So who put the rubber snake in the attic?  Jordan says she's the only one that's lived in her home and no one else could have done it.

CBS 46 contacted the Department of Natural Resources and the state herpatologist confirmed it was a rubber snake similar to this one and now the state is investigating.
